    HI! I studied from the Praxis website-the companion review. It gave several questions and then the reasons for the answers. I also googled 'praxis 5018 study guide' and all sorts of videos came up to watch that covered the highlights of each subject. I would say really study English and math if those are not strong for you as they make up the majority of your score. I will say I only studied for maybe 4 hours total though but I think since I am in school right now that probably helped because the material is very fresh.
    Good luck! I live in TN also and I graduate in one year with my Masters in K-6!!!

    Praxis 5018

    I took the Praxis II (5018) yesterday and received a raw score of 180. I am confused about this score because there were only 140 questions on the test. Any ideas? In reading the CO Dept Education's bulletin from June '14, it says that a raw score of 83 on the older test with 120 questions is a passing score.
    Thanks!

    I think your 180 is probably a scaled score.

    I took the praxis 5018 test a couple of weeks ago and just received my official score on Friday. I needed a 163 to pass and received a 173. To prepare for the test I used a study guide from a company called mometrix. It was nice because it had links to go to where topics were discussed in more detail. I warn you that some of the videos were on the cheesy side, but it helped so I can't complain too much. I also purchased a study guide for the praxis 5014 test at Barnes and noble. I printed the study companion from the ets website and used that as well. Good luck.

    Just took the 5001 today and had a very similar score in reading with a 45. Curious to hear what your full score was if you don't mind me asking. Hoping for the best! thanks

    Hello,
    I am in the process of acquiring a transitional license. We are similar in that I have a B.S. I have to pass 5018 to be highly qualified to teach SPED in my county. I have failed this test 4 times!! 152, 159, 161, 160;/// HELP!! Give me the run down. My Math is always the lowest score and the others are proficient but random!! I am going broke taking this test and aging every time I have to take the 2 hr test. I have the practic test. SUCKS and the old K-6 content knowledge. Side note- passed the mild to moderate SPED K-12 test the first time:) I'm desperate;) Congrats, Laura

    For the math, I'd recommend copying out the test outline from the Test Companion as a list, so you can see and check off what you're supposed to know, and then either engaging a tutor to help you with that or working on your own through that content in Khan Academy, www.khanacademy.org, starting with the stuff you're fairly sure you know.

    Teacher groupie this helps. I just took my test 5018 content knowledge today and thought I was in the clear until I came home to see that things have changed since I graduated in 2010. I made a 140 on my test and was jumping for joy as I've taken it oh just 3 times before that and kept getting a 130. I am quite upset about the change as it felt like reading was too long and really put me to sleep. I felt good about timing though.
    Raw scores were
    21/49 reading
    22/41 math
    10/25 S.S
    11/25 Science
    I can use some help as I studied from the praxis site and flash cards from quizlets finding nothing of too much listed in SS and Science. I am ready to re-take it, but my money funny. I hate this because I am ready to take it by Tuesday of next week while its all on my brain. The wait is ridiculous. I can use some study tips and places to find the social studies and science knowledge. HELP please!!!!

    Congrats on passing!! Since you have passed the 5018, do you have any advice for those of us still trying to pass it?? I have taken it several times and tried several different study options with NO luck. I would really appreciate any advice you could give.

    What methods have you tried? I took it and passed. I used the study materials from the ETS website and a study guide from Barnes and Noble. I also took practice tests on TechersTestPrep website.

    ETS does not have any study materials for the 5018, but I have taken the practice test they have. I have used study materials for the Missouri Hi-Set (high school equivalency test), I have used what I can find on Quizlet and 5014 study guides. I am getting very frustrated as I have been soo close but still not passed. What was the name of the study guide from Barnes and Noble?
